N2W Software (a Veeam company) announced the immediate availability of Cloud Protection Manager v2.3. Among other new features, this new version includes automated backup and recovery operations for Amazon DynamoDB, a fully managed (Serverless) NoSQL database service.
A recent survey by N2WS indicates growing adoption across organizations leveraging AWS services with over 25 percent of respondents confirming they were leveraging Amazon DynamoDB. Cloud Protection Manager (CPM) customers can now create policy/schedule-based backups for Amazon DynamoDB tables. CPM retains important DynamoDB attributes when performing recovery, including time-to-live (TTL) definitions as well as any tag values.
Amazon Web Services is extremely resilient with a massively redundant architecture, but to ensure continuous availability and protect against accidental or malicious data deletion, CIOs understand that Amazon DynamoDB data must be protected. CPM provides CIOs with the confidence they need to move critical data into Amazon DynamoDB.
“Serverless options are growing in popularity as they help remove a lot of the complexity of deploying an application into production. Our customers are already using CPM for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) backup and were asking for Amazon DynamoDB support. We are happy to offer it to them from the same console,” comments Uri Wolloch, CTO and founder at N2WS.
Cloud Protection Manager 2.3 includes several new features and enhancements:
Automated backup for DynamoDB. CPM now provides enterprise-level backup and recovery for Amazon DynamoDB. This new feature eliminates the need for manual intervention – customers can enjoy the benefits of applying existing policies and schedules to backup and restore their Amazon DynamoDB tables.
RESTful API. Provides seamless integration between CPM and other applications. Within the API customers can leverage CPM’s powerful automation capabilities and set schedules and policies.
AWS CloudFormation template. New AWS CloudFormation template was designed to shorten CPM time-to-value with a 1-click launch AWS CloudFormation template.
Other new features in this release include cross-region and cross-account disaster recovery for Amazon Aurora databases and a newly re-designed reporting tab and enhanced permissions for independent users. Customers and prospects can immediately start using the latest features by launching the new v2.3 Cloud Protection Manager AMI from AWS Marketplace.
Used by over a thousand customers worldwide, Cloud Protection Manager (CPM) is a leading backup and recovery solution for Amazon EC2 instances, Amazon RDS and Amazon Aurora databases and Amazon Redshift clusters. By leveraging and enhancing AWS native snapshot capabilities, CPM is a fully-featured solution providing unparalleled backup and recovery for data held in the AWS cloud.
